I don’t know what to say if this deal would come into life. It is rumored today that the developers of Minecraft; Mojang AB is in serious talk with Microsoft. Yes “IN SERIOUS TALK” they say. Microsoft wanted to buy the friggin’ company dude.
The deal was rumored amounting to $2 billion, according to Wall Street Journal, and an expected announcement will be made earlier this week. Both parties declined to comment about this deal also.
Mojang sold 54 million copies of their game competing with large companies even though the game developer Markus “Notch” Perrson quits until the completion of the game Minecraft.
I have a bad feeling about this knowing that Mojang refused every major company just to be acquired and stay on the market. I hope Mojang would do the right thing and decide what will be the best for them. And I really hope this the game will not be ruined, just in case the deal will be made.
